Showcasing the project RE.CRI.RE to the European Commission and the Executive Agency REA (19/11/2015)

The RE.CRI.RE project has been showcased today to the European Commission and its executive agency REA by a small team representative of the whole consortium.


Ms Antonella Valmorbida, Secretary General of ALDA, Prof Sergio Salvatore, University of Salento, Prof Alessandro Distante, President of ISBEM, Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of the Citizenship programme at ALDA and Ms Viviana Fini, researcher at ISBEM composed the team. RE.CRI.RE brought its methodological analysis into the panel addressing the topic “Political challenges in Europe” aimed at understanding what the research in social sciences and humanities tell us about changing Europe.

The project will represent a milestone within ALDA’s citizenship programme in the upcoming three years. ALDA, in cooperation with its strategic partner ISBEM, is the coordinator of a network of 14 universities coming from 12 different countries across Europe. Promoting good governance and citizen participation calls for a deeper reflection on the symbolic universes grounding social identity in order to analyse whether a major change occurred in European societies as a consequence of the socio-economic crisis. Reflecting upon the categories citizens adopt in representing the outside world is key to develop effective policies at all levels of governance.

The project brings therefore together academics and practitioners in accordance with the new approach of the Horizon 2020 programme focused on applied research. Besides the coordination of the partnership, ALDA will strongly contribute to the initiative by providing a network of more than 180 members as communities where to develop case studies and test the outcomes of the research.
